Loving La Cruz

The longest time we have stayed at one place, and there are many good reasons.

Making new friends with a great boat family who have kids the same age. It's wonderful when there is a click between both parents and kids.

The quaint little town is just in easy walking distance, with necessities as ice cream and taco's close by. A little tienda has an evening market with fresh produce at whole sale prices in the back once a week, a great place to stock up.

The marina where we stayed the first week, is kid friendly, and organizes all kind of events for kids (there are quite a few boat families here). Tessa joined the science class today, given by a former science teacher. Well, when I said joined, she just climbed in the V-berth and played with the older kids. Tessa has invited herself to several other boats in the marina, and every time is warmly welcomed by the cruisers.

We moved to the large anchorage the second week and even though it can be rolly at some times, it's quite doable, and we enjoy the fresh breeze.

When it' get too hot, we can either jump in the tiny marina pool, or just stroll over to the beach. Luckily, we have had many cloudy days.

So, finally, life in the slow lane. What to do next? Manana, Manana........
